i Triumph lor l>arwlii In IIIn
Lomdon, November 21.?A remarkable
event occurred at Cambridge on Saturday
last, which haa given riae to much
comment and surprise that auch a degree
of intolerance ahould exiat in England.
On that day the degree of Doctor of Civil
Lawa was conferred upon Charles Darwin
by the University.
Notwithstanding the illustrious rank
which Mr. Darwin haa long held in the
scientific world, the clerical power has
been ntrong enough in the governing body !
of the University of Cambridge and Oxford
to prevent anj honorary degreo from
being awarded to him heretofore. The
capture of the honorary diploma for Mr.
Darwin wan, therefore,
REUARDKD A8 A GREAT VICTORY
for the anti-Clerical party, and this fact
has given the occasion much interest that
it would not otherwise have had. Accordingly,
ton Saturday, Mr. Darwin'tt
friends presented themselves in great
force, determined that the moral effect of
a large representation of scienti6c and
literarvmen present in the interest of the
heretofore neglected scientist should not
be wanting. The under graduates thronged
the galleries of the great hall, and the
desire to Bee the savant was general.
When Darwin and Huxley appeared, the
mi wirt iuucu tu iuc Buaricb gown oi a
TREMENDOUS AND ENTHUSIASTIC CHEERS
Broke forth from all part* of the building.
The massive features of Darwin
were immobile as stone. No one present
could detect even a trace of gratification
in the lines of the face or in the expression
of the eyes. It was certainly a
moment of great victory for the aged
philosopher. The impressive ceremony
was diversified by the usual hooting sna
chafing from the students, which was far
worse than the uproar heard in Oxford
on the occasion on which General Grant
received a similar degree. The licenne
accorded to the boys on tbo?e occasion*
far exceeds anything that can be imagined
by the College faculties of the United
States. At a critical moment in the proceedings
an effigy oi a monkey, robed in
an undergraduate's gown, was lowered
into the middle of the hall from the most
(imminent nnint In tka nallarv Tl.Ia
efligy bore a legend, in iarge letters, read*
"THE M1861K0 LINK."
Notwithstanding all thin cbafling and
laughter there waa much sincere enthusiasm.
In the evening Dr. Darwin was
further honored with a public dinner,
but the delicate health of the kaxanl pre*
vented liia attendance. Professor Huxley
made the speech in response to the toant
of Mr. Darwin's health. The event has,
beyond question, created a deep and gratifying
impression among the scientific
claaaeB throughout Englaud.
Pittsburgh to Wheeling via
Waihlogtoo Letter in Pittsburgh Gazette.
In view of the already completed and
prospective roads passing^through our
town, itseems we are to become a rail*
road centre of some importance. Even
now (he travel went from Pittsburgh to
Wheeling, is being diverted from the old
to thin newer route. .And there are good
reasons for this preference for our line.
It is shorter by a goodly number of miles;
again, the rich hills and beautiful valleys
of Washington county,from a picturesque
scenery that is a tiling of beauty and an
everlasting joy to the intelligent traveler;
moreover, tne hour or so of leisure, between
trains, spent in our time honored
town, the home of the alma mater of so
many men eminent in politics and the
professions, is not to be despised in the
dar of small things.
Just here let me record our annMcla..
tion of the eflorta being marie on the part
of the Hewpfield(B. <k 0.) rood in the
interest of our town and community.
First, they reduced the fare all along the
line about 25 per cent. Next, they .give
us an early train from Wheeling, which

The citizens of Cumberland held a mass
meeting Tuesday evening to'express their
views concerning the project for the ex*
tension of the Pennsylvania Railroad to
that place, which is being resisted by the
Baltimore & Ohio Company. Addresses
were made strongly favoring tho exten*
sion, and denunciatory of the Baltimore
& Ohio Railroad for "endeavoring to
trouble the enterprise," and a preamble
and resolutions adopted requesting the
council to pass, and the Mayor to approve
the ordinance authorizing the issue of
$65,000 of city bonds to aid in the building
of the new road, and that it be sub
miueu 10 a vote 01 tuo. people on the 12tb
Local Live Stock Markets.
The farmers of Lake county, Ohio,
have adopted a scheme which, we think,
could be profitably imitated by the agriculturist*
of every county in the State.
Every Saturday afternoon they have what
can appropriately be termed a stock mar*
ket. "If any man has a horse or other
kind of stock to sell he can take it to one
of these gatherings and be pretty sure to
find a buyer, on the other hand, if a man
wants to purchase any kind of stock, the
meeting gives bim a chance to get what
he wants without much trouble. It i>
made a sort of general market day for
stock, and is found to bo a great benefit to
both Dtfyer and seller.
